Klondike Derby 2018 – there are two derbies, one geared to Cub Scouts (Webelos)  and one for Boy Scouts  – Mr. Nowiski and Mr.  Aieta  are coordinating a team for both events, and we  need older scout participation both to mentor the younger scouts and to prepare a competitive sled team for the Boy Scout event. We encourage ALL scouts to attend the event to cheer the Troop 2 team on, and remind all scouts that this is part of Scout Spirit as well as an opportunity to complete advancement requirements.
